Aidy Bryant has talked about leaving the cast of Saturday Night Live during an interview with Variety

The 35-year-old performer discussed various aspects of her departure, pointing out that she would like to return to the program in a different capacity in the future.

Bryant began by saying she planned to leave Saturday Night Live for an extended period prior to the start of the pandemic.

“Without COVID, I probably would have left a few years earlier. But it was such a huge change,” she said.

She also noted that this past run with the show was more like what she expected from a final round.

“I kept trying to find one last normal year. This year was not the normal year I had hoped for, but it was getting closer,” she says.

Bryant noted that she was happy with what she had achieved with the program and that she was still supportive of the cast.

“I didn’t want it to come off like I was leaving angry. I’m leaving with so much love,” she said.

She also spoke of saying goodbye to the show during one of the Weekend Update segments, saying, “I was worried I was going to break it open really wide and cry completely. It felt very happy.’

Bryant said Saturday Night Live producers would probably easily find new talent to replace her and the other cast members who left at the end of the season.

“It’s always been there, so it doesn’t need you. It’s like a machine that works without you,’ she said.

The performer noted that she would still be keeping up with the show, as she said, “I’d be sad not to watch it. I am also so excited about this cast. We are leaving with so many, there will be more room for people to shine.’

When asked if she would be interested in hosting the show, Bryant replied, “Absolutely. But that’s up to them.’
